Tour Overview

Get ready for the Trail+Kayak Summer Blend—A unique fusion of outdoor exploration and adventure that beckons you to dive into the thrill of summer. Your adventure begins with a summer-friendly short and sweet hike, winding along the stunning cliffs of Blackwall Reach or the serene Bicton Baths in Point Walter.

As you reach the midpoint of your journey, transition from the trail to the water’s edge for a splash of excitement. Collaborating with the skilled team from Gogo Active Tours, embark on an exclusive kayaking experience, immersing yourself in the thrill of kayaking, drawing inspiration from the scenic surroundings and letting the summer vibes guide your flow. An undeniable highlight of the Trail+Kayak Summer Blend is the eight-meter limestone cliffs emerging from the Swan River.

Crafted for adventurers of all levels, whether you’re a seasoned kayaker or a first-time hiker, this experience ensures everyone can partake in the joy of both water-based fun and exploration. To cap off this harmonious blend of trail and kayak, treat yourself to a refreshing beverage, perfectly complementing the summertime ambiance and providing a moment to reflect on the memories forged during this one-of-a-kind adventure.
